Christmas Day Devotion

Gospel Reading for the Day:

Luke 2:19

“But Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.”          

Reflection

A trip that you’ve planned for months, a new job or relationship, a book or movie that you’ve looked forward to for a long time: how many times have you eagerly anticipated something only to have the reality of that experience not live up to your expectations? Disappointment is no fun.

Christmas is one of those rare occasions in life when reality far exceeds our already high expectations. Think about this for a moment: for hundreds of years, prophets like Isaiah and Malachi anticipated a Savior who would come to us in the flesh. They had high hopes for a Messiah that would come to save us.

Reflect also on Mary this Christmas Day. Nine months before, the angel Gabriel visited her and announced that she would give birth to the Savior of the world. Mary asked: “How can these things be?” Gabriel replied: “Nothing is too wonderful for God.”

After Gabriel’s visit, Mary, like the prophets, had high hopes. She trusted that nothing would be too wonderful for God, that an ordinary person like herself could bear God. Imagine her joy when she finally held Jesus in her arms. Gabriel was right: nothing is too wonderful for God! Her high hopes were more than met by the reality of this “holy infant so tender and mild.”

Receive this gift today. It doesn’t come in any wrapping paper. No assembly is required. The only thing you need to do is open your heart to the good news of Jesus’ birth. When the shepherds arrived at the manger and announced to Mary and Joseph that the angels had told them everything about Jesus, Mary treasured these words and pondered them in her heart.

“To you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.” Like Mary, treasure these words that proclaim a reality that exceeds all our hopes and dreams. Nothing is too wonderful for God on this Christmas Day!
